It’s the warmest Easter in the UK I can remember, which is great for being outdoors, but not so great for sitting at the PC blogging. Here’s my second guitar. It’s a Hohner Fender 65 strat copy from 1981, almost certainly made in Fender’s Japan factory, but I’d have to dismantle it to find the Fender factory mark inside the heel. It plays better than lots of real Fenders I’ve played. It suits Ernie Ball hybrid slinky 9s, and I use it to record as it’s punchier than the Taylor. Here it is on episode 1 of my songwriting podcast, The Riff, which I started last month.
